To access this section in EV Charge, from the Menu, select Operations, and click Chargers. A paginated list of all chargers is shown in a tabular format.
To generate the chargers list in a spreadsheet, click CSV. To print, click Print, and to copy, click Copy.
Note:They are generated, printed, and copied per paginated page.
Information:You can filter for a charger by name, serial number, model, vendor, operational status, or/and charging status.
To see the list of connectors found in a charger, click Expand.
Both chargers and connectors can be turned on/off. To achieve this, click Request availability change. Turning off a connector will send a request to the charger via OCPP to make that part inoperative.
Turning a charger/connector on/off is the same as making it available or unavailable to end users. Unavailable chargers in the EV Charge - Mobile App cannot be used to start a session.
Change availability is the operation (based on OCPP) which provides an operator to manage the availability of the connected charging device from the Tridens EV Charge’s central system. Operation offers to request the connected charging device to change the availability of the charger or specific connector from
Available and vice-versa.
Note:Please note that this feature can not be used if the charging device is not connected with the central system, as in that case the central system does not have any control over the charging device.
Tip:Turning a charger/connector on/off can be helpful during maintenance.
Furthermore, a connector can be locked/unlocked by clicking .
Some EV chargers lock the connector to prevent it from being removed during charging for safety purposes. The lock/unlock action manually triggers that process. It is typically used for debugging or resolution if the charger does not release the connector due to a malfunction.
